Hello,

I have a Dell Inspiron 15 and I just got my power button fixed by Dell after it had gotten stuck. 2 weeks later and all of a sudden, the button works but when I turn it on, the battery light flashes like it usually does when I turn it on. However, the computer doesnt do anything else. And when I hold down the power button, it flashes intermittently. Ive tried taking out the battery to no avail. Any ideas?

Hello Lbonner,

So, the laptop has only its leds blinking, right? You most probably have to check if there's an error with the BIOS. Have you tried resetting it? If not, please try do so by pulling out the CMOS battery. You must do that after you have pulled out the battery and the power cord of the laptop. Open the lid and localize the CMOS battery which lies next to the processor and it looks like a watch battery. If you have another CMOS battery, you can replace it with that. If you don't, leave your current battery aside and wait for some minutes for the electricity to discharge. Then, plug the CMOS battery back in and the power cord. Try to boot your laptop again.

Hope I gave you an idea.
